Honestly, if you like a good drama (with cheesy acting) about rich people in the Hamptons getting up to allsorts, this is for you.

E4 9pm tonight.

Sounds like my cup of tea. How much have I missed though? Will I be able to pick it up?!!

BrightnessFalls Mon 28-May-12 14:49:50

It starts tonight, I caught the beginning in the States.

TreesDogsBooks Mon 28-May-12 14:51:48

Whats Grimm?

I feel terrible about GOT, I have got the last three waiting for me to watch. I havent taken to it this time around at all.

There is a plus 1 for E4?

I tried Grimm but didn't like the lead guy- he looked like a bland Tom Cruise.
I'm quite enjoying Once Upon a Time but was gutted that they killed off the gorgeous sheriff!

Revenge looks really cheesy good I have it on my Sky + list.

I quite enjoy Grimm. I like the lead actor (he's quite nice to look at) but it seriously needs more female characters. Whole episodes almost go buy with no women featured at all. It's odd.

DamselInDisgrace Mon 28-May-12 15:39:25

And I'm slightly uneasy by the implication that all criminals/people who do bad things are non-human monsters. I'm not sure this is a very helpful idea.

BrightnessFalls Mon 28-May-12 18:25:47

Let me know what you think of it. Its the pilot tonight.

I have seen most of the series don't ask how and enjoyed it up to the last few. It has become a bit predictable, like they thought it would be cancelled after 8 episodes, and then got caught out. But it is enjoyable at the beginning, so I'm sticking with it. The acting is a bit pants though- it's very reminiscent of 'Falcon's Crest'grin

It is supposed be based on 'The Count of Monte Cristo' (very, very loosely).grin

BrightnessFalls Mon 28-May-12 19:56:00

Oh, my gay friends love it as its so camp. Its very Falcons Crest thats true. I still loved the first few I saw. Ive decided to watch it legally from the beginning again smile

Raahh Mon 28-May-12 20:01:10

Oh it is camp as Christmasgrin- Nolan is brilliant, he reminds me of a young James Spader.

BrightnessFalls Mon 28-May-12 20:14:04

Yes. Lets not give it away but, what have I seen him in before?

Raahh Mon 28-May-12 20:51:37

ooh, i don't know- not sure I have seen him before?

BrightnessFalls Mon 28-May-12 20:57:52

Rebecca was in Brothers and Sisters. She couldnt act in that either smile

Im off to watch it now.....

Flubba Mon 28-May-12 21:08:45

Misse the first 10 mins (up until the sea-shaggers found the dead body). Can someone please recap? Ta muchly smile

Barbeasty Mon 28-May-12 21:08:47

I think they only commissioned 8 episodes at first, then the rest of the series later (I know there were a few gaps in broadcasting in the USA and it's only just finished over there).

Nolan was in a few episodes of Mad Men, and 2 of the Bourne films. Lots of other stuff too, but those were the things which jumped out. (If you google revenge and go to the IMDb site it has a full list).

BrightnessFalls Mon 28-May-12 21:59:32

I think he's modelesque.

I have it on delay. Just putting it on.

BrightnessFalls Mon 28-May-12 22:17:33

I love that red stripy jumper. I reckon there will be alot of Ralph Lauren on this show.

TreesDogsBooks Thu 31-May-12 12:04:56

Loved it! Looking forward to next weeks episode.

BrightnessFalls Thu 31-May-12 17:51:35

It was the pilot, it wasnt as good as next weeks when it really gets going.

Whatevertheweather Thu 31-May-12 22:19:02

Thank you for this Brightnessfalls saw the thread earlier and just watched it on catch up. Loved it too! Needed something to fill Grey's Anatomy void and this looks like it will do nicely smile

I quite enjoyed it.

But just had a quick nosy & there are about 20eps & a 2nd series-not sure I´ll last that long!
